President Muhammadu Buhari, warned leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC), at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting yesterday, to shun imposition of candidates if they want the party to emerge victorious in the 2023 general election.
Buhari, at the meeting in Abuja, said the dictatorial behaviours of some leaders had cost the party many strategic elective positions, and led to the defection of several influential members of the party.
This came as the APC NEC transferred its powers to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) for 90 days. It was similar to what happened during the now defunct Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party led by the governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni.
That was as National Chairman of APC, Abdullahi Adamu, yesterday, decried the “cold war” between serving and former governors, claiming the situation, fuelled by ego, is tearing the party apart.
